Housby is certainly no stranger to global competitions, having previously being picked for the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the 2015 Netball World Cup.

The Gems of Zimbabwe caught the world's attention, Friday, after a convincing 79-49 win over Sri Lanka in their opening Vitality 2019 World Cup game in Liverpool, England.

Zimbabwean netball fan and avid sports follower, Tatenda Makazhu, said he is on cloud nine after the Zimbabwean victory adding that he was now hopeful the team could bring home the coveted cup.

"It is devastating that her journey in this World Cup is over, but myself and all of the Roses are by her side supporting her through this time".

For England, who have now beaten Uganda in all of the two sides' last 5 meetings, they were as impressive as they would have dreamed, shooting over 87%.

However, any Scottish hopes that their opponents might be too focused on the bigger picture were dashed in an nearly faultless opening quarter - Guscoth's departure apart - in which both Dunn and Helen Housby scored 100 per cent of goal attempts to establish an 18-9 lead.

The She Cranes struggled throughout the contest.

Proscovia's excellent interruptions held England back early on before their power in the centre began to tell and they turned a 15-6 lead at the end of the first quarter into a relatively emphatic 31-18 advantage at half-time.

Veteran Dunn, a former two-time Commonwealth Games bronze medallist, missed out on the squad for the Gold Coast but said watching her team-mates claim their historic gold has left both them and her hungry for more.

The She Cranes - ranked sixth in the world - scored first but the Roses strode into the lead shortly and never fell behind again as the Ugandan's never matched England's speed.

Maxwell said: "We know tickets sold out so quickly for this game and it will be special to hear our anthem being played, so we really can't wait to get out there and take them on".
